Yes, mostly because you can use your eyes.  I guess blind people would
find the list rendering much more adapted !

Maybe such a matrix of boolean values would have other uses than
feature matrices, with the "version >= X" possibly being generalized
as some sort of "condition" attribute ?  Even in the field of feature
comparison, I can imagine the need to say something like "GNOME had
this feature from version 1.4 included to 2.0 excluded" - damn it what
a mess :)
